‘Zapping’: Coach Leon Cameron, Giants part ways after 10 years

Leon Cameron is stepping down as GWS coach after an indifferent start to AFL season 2022 and 10 years in charge without a premiership for the NSW expansion club.

“I know I’ve still got the players but it’s a zapping job… but in saying that, that’s not just the one reason,” the 49-year-old said at a press conference announcing his resignation on Thursday.

GWS sources earlier told The Age the split as an “amicable separation”, with Cameron to coach this weekend against Carlton, before former Essendon midfielder Mark McVeigh takes over as caretaker at the AFL’s 18th club.

The split with GWS comes just months after Cameron came third in the Allan Jeans award, the AFL Coaches Association prize for coach of the year. In an award voted on by every senior and assistant coach in the AFL, Cameron was considered by his peers to have done an outstanding job in 2021 with the players he had available.

The Giants have just two wins so far in season 2022 – against the Suns and Adelaide. The Giants and Cameron had said publicly and separately that there would be no chance of contract talks until the end of the season.
